The Pan African University Institute for Water and Energy Sciences including Climate Change in Algeria contributes to promoting higher education and applied research in the fields of water, energy and climate change – a key contribution to sustainable development in Africa.
Building a prosperous and stable Africa calls for a new generation of African leaders capable of and committed to facing the vast challenges of the continent. These challenges include water scarcity, renewable energy, and climate change. The Pan African University (PAU) a key initiative of the African Union Commission, is dedicated to this mission.
Since its establishment in 2014, over 200 students from 31 countries across Africa have enrolled, and 73 students have been successfully graduated from its programs. “PAUWES is a prototype of the Africa of tomorrow, for which we are laying the foundations,” said Moussa Faki Mahamat, Chairperson of the African Union Commission. PAUWES benefits from the support of the Algerian government and the German Development Cooperation.
Over 2-year Master programs, the language of instruction is English, and students have the opportunity to study French at the onset of the program. Students come from all over Africa, which creates a unique possibility to study in a multicultural environment of highly motivated and engaged peers.
Under the framework of the African Union’s Agenda 2063, the program places a special emphasis on recruiting and empowering female students. To further develop its vision of diversity, PAUWES also encourages applicants with disabilities and candidates from under-represented regions (Southern Africa, Central Africa, Northern Africa) to apply. All PAUWES students receive full scholarships (covering tuition and living expenses) following a competitive admission process.
